Hey. Psst. Caps fan. Yeah, you. I see you creepin’. Come here, I have an idea for you.
Once upon a time, Montreal booed the USA national anthem during a Habs-Bruins game. The series then traveled to Boston. Did we follow suit and jeer during the Canadian anthem? Did we yell “LET’S GO BRUINS!” or sing some ungodly version of that stupid OLE song?
No. We stood, cheered, and sang along as Rene Rancourt belted out the lyrics to the anthem of America’s Fancy Hat. And then the Bruins kicked some Canadien butt.
Look, guys, we all know your team can handle the butt-kicking. We all saw the score of the game tonight; we know that Ovie, Backstrom, Laich and Crew should have no problem annihilating the Habs in the last two games of the series.
But HOW COOL WOULD IT BE if Washington DC welcomed Les Habitants with a rousing cheer for Canada’s anthem?
And if you don’t know the words but you want to sing along, just follow the example of the LA Kings’ anthem singer and look it up on your Blackberry. I’m sure somewhere Jim Balsillie is fist-pumping with glee.
Oh, and – just because this post can’t be all about the Habs and the Caps, since there was in fact another game 3 tonight…
Game 4 is Wednesday.
Rask is on fire (2.01 GAA).
Boychuk and Sobotka have developed a taste for Buffalo. Mmm, delicious hits. Specifically, this one.
Playoffs, the playoffs what. GO BRUINS.
